    Default Turk and Derozan out for Indiana Rematch

    Just a quick update on Turk and Demar from the globe and mail.

    The Toronto Raptors will attempt to extend their National Basketball Association winning streak to six games without the services of Hedo Turkoglu.

    Raptors coach Jay Triano confirmed after today's practice that the veteran forward will travel with the team to Indianapolis for Tuesday night's rematch against the Indiana Pacers but won't play.

    Turkoglu suffered a small fracture to the orbital bone beneath his right eye early in Sunday's 117-112 win over the Pacers at the ACC.

    "He's getting it re-evaluated right now," Triano said. "He will travel with us but probably won't play."

    Triano said he is not sure how long Turkoglu will be lost to the team.

    When he does return he will likely be wearing a plastic face mask as protection.

    Triano also said that rookie DeMar DeRozan has not yet fully recovered from a sprained right ankle and also will miss the game on Tuesday.

    Thanks for the update.

    I don't expect Hedo and Derozan to come back until after the All-Star break. Both of their injuries are severed in their own respect.

    Ugh... Bad news but even so, I feel the Raptors are going to come into this game firing on all cylinders, looking for payback.

    Default The Bench Has Gotten Thin

    The injuries to Turk and DeRozan have hit the Raptors in their weakest positions, on the wing.

    Here's hoping that the healthy guys plus Bargnani who is playing hurt can carry the extra minutes effectively.

    As long as Wright continues to step it up I have all the confidence in the world in him right now moving forward. He's been playing like the player I expected prior to this season starting. I'm very happy with Wright's performance right now. Same goes with Weems. I just think he's a little too jumpshot happy. Want to see him drive more.

    With DeRozan & Hedo out we can really see what Wright, Weems & Beli have to offer...

    Which in turn I hope makes us a deeper team & also makes for more barganing chips for BC if he makes a move before the deadline.

    Marco has another opportunity to have a good game with more minutes available to him tomorrow night. It seems he's now our new Joey...

    Does this affect DeRozan's participation in the dunk-in? You do need both ankles to get some lift...
